Big Events Planned for Spring Match
April 12, 2010
COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Maryland men's soccer team announces a pair of exciting events to take place during its spring contest against conference-rival Virginia on Friday, April 23.
Maryland will aim to raise awareness of brain tumors by spotlighting Justin's Quest in its match versus Virginia at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Germantown, Md.,
Tickets are $5 for Maryland students with a valid ID and youth under the age of 12. Adult tickets are $10. All tickets will be sold at the gate only and on a cash-only basis.
Justin's Quest was founded by the Friedlander family after their son Justin was diagnosed with a brain tumor in March of 2009. Justin will be Maryland's honorary captain on the bench in the NCAA Elite Eight rematch against the Cavs while a portion of the proceeds raised at the gate will go directly to the National Brain Tumor Society. Justin's Quest is aiming to raise $250,000 for the society while shooting 40,000 baskets, one for every person diagnosed with a brain tumor this year. Members of the men's soccer team shot baskets with Justin earlier this year.
